Yorkie mix – 6 years old – 10 pds – affectionate No other pets – no kids – home ground-level window needed 

Ruby is a sweet girl looking for a quiet home with owner home a lot. No other pets, no kids, and she would very much like a ground level window to look out of, one of her favourite pastimes. If you have this type of home to offer her, please fill out an application. If you don’t, please fill out one anyway to be contacted about one of our many other dogs. 🙂 She loves running in the yard, good on leash, responds well to the basic commands in English and she thrives with a routine in a quiet, calm household. Ruby can be anxious so patience will be required for her to settle. Ruby must NOT be crated. She is okay if left alone for short periods so she would do better in a home where the owner is not away full days. Ruby had a skin condition when she came into rescue, due to likely anxiety in her former home and an allergy, and she’s now doing well with an over-the-counter allergy med,  which her new owner expect to continue giving her. — Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area. All dogs are fully vetted and fixed, and we assess behaviour to the fullest extent possible so that our adoptions will be as successful as possible. You must fill out the application and be approved to adopt. If the specific dog in this post doesn’t sound suitable, please understand we have dogs arriving all the time, and MOST go quickly to pre-approved adopters that suit them (that is, many dogs are never posted to our website! Only when we have an overflow!). So, please fill out the application at this link to get in the pool, BUT NOTE SOME FOLKS ARE HAVING TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES, SO IF THAT’S YOU, PLEASE SEE INSTRUCTIONS AT THE SAME LINK!  Thank you and talk soon!

 

Grizzly – on trial adoption!

11 pounds – about 9 years old – loving and cuddly – loves walks – gets along well with other dogs

Hello! I am Grizzly! Through no fault of my own, I am another sweet older dog looking for my loving forever home. I have many years left and so much love to give. I am a mixture of who knows what breeds, but I am cuddly and love my owner and other dogs and going for walks. I am a bit skittish though, and I need a quiet home with no children. Could I come home with you??  Would you like to meet me??

FOSTER PARENTS NEEDED

Hello! Would you like to foster a dog in need? Our rescue cannot save dogs that have been abandoned or rescued from a shelter or puppy mill unless we have foster homes with loving folk like you to help prepare dogs for their forever homes. Minpinerie is a non-profit Ottawa-based organization made up of dedicated dog-loving volunteers who rescue and foster miniature pinschers that have been surrendered by their owners, willingly released by puppy mills or breeders, or abandoned in shelters. If you have the room in your home and your heart, (or know of someone who might) please let us know by filling out the application online and help us out by giving one of these sweeties a loving temporary place to stay on their journey to their forever home. You can find out more about a dog that might fit your family and lifestyle by calling or writing to Louise at loulouonline@rogers.com or filling in the volunteer application.
